Shutesbury

 

 

 Shutesbury is bordered by the Quabbin Reservoir, and the town's proximity to the huge body of water ensures preservation of some of its rural character because of the restrictions placed on development within the watershed of the Quabbin. 

Today the town of Shutesbury is very rural with lots of natural scenery and a population under 2,000 people.  It is located only 20 minutes from Amherst and is known for its picturesque landscape.

Lake Wyola is a gorgeous swimming hole in Shutesbury. It is also known for boating, paddling, fishing or just some relaxing sunbathing. Many people live year round or have second homes along the lake.
